This morning, Hoopers NY’s Nicole Melious did what she does so well, scoring 23 points and dishing out seven assists in a win over Team Blake Griffin. The victory advances the team in the National Platinum Championship tilt against the Illinois Lady Lightning today at 12:50 p.m.
Melious (Wagner, Staten Island) did not do it alone. Kaety L’Amoreaux (Maine-Endwell High School, NY) contributed 14 points, seven rebounds, and four steals while Saran Moschella (Staten Island Academy, Staten Island) added 11.
With the Championship on the line today, Head Dan Melious said he is particularly proud of two players: Vivienne Knee (Lycee Francais de New York) and Nicole Sanfilippo (Ardsley, NY), both of whom have been key factors in the program’s prosperous two-year run.
“Win or lose, I’m so thankful for this team last two seasons,” Melious said. “Vivienne Knee and Nicole Sanfilippo have been instrumental in the success of this team and program. I’m beyond proud of them.”
